I was washing mine in warm water and dawn but someone on the forum said they weren't supposed to be washed, so now if one of my hens lay in the poop I just try and keep cleaning with the hay, and I have one that does it almost every week.Someone else may know more than i do I'm a sorta newbee, just turned a year old, and these are the first chickens I have had in probably 25 years or more. marrie
I only wash mine if they are really dirty like on rainy muddy days etc. I use just water and rub them clean under the faucet with my fingers.

If my eggs are dirty, I just use warm water and dish detergent. I rarely have eggs dirty enough for me to bother though, I try to keep the nest boxes clean.
The bubble buckets you can get online work very well.
PS I just use water and a rag if they are dirty, which is usually on a rainy,muddy day.
I just read an article in Backyard Poultry, that said the best way to clean the eggs without destroying the natural bacteria barrier is to use a paper towel on moist manure and sand paper on dry.
